Over the past few weeks we’ve all been forced to move our research meetings online in an effort to progress our research, stay connected and have a semblance of what was normal. Holding data sessions remotely is not new — for the past 3 years we have been running the Remote Data Sessions (RDS) series to provide a space for people that may not have access to regular data sessions, or a CA community to practice doing CA and connect with others in the community. This report compiles our thoughts on the most accessible and data session friendly platform, how to access that platform through ISCA, our own procedures for hosting a remote data session (which are applicable for other platforms), and finally we invite discussion and comments on your own ways of remotely working.

Translation can be tricky in many ways and decisions are always consequential. Importantly, CA’s emic approach foregrounds the dataset over researcher’s assumptions. This means that every detail in how people design their turn can be consequential for what is going on, but might also not be treated as such; it all depends on interlocutors’ orientation.
